Running for the line

FLICKING through some pictures of African tribal pottery the other day, I came across an interlocking design on the theme of running tribesmen, their knees and elbows raised high as they powered across the plains.

It gave me an idea for a painting, which I've named The Road Race. Its only objective is to produce a kind of tracery of limbs suggesting intense movement as the runners head for the line, with spectators howling encouragement from the sidelines. Hope you like it.
